Artist Biographies:

"Trumpeter and composer Michael Sarian has been praised for his "unique compositional and instrumental voice... reminiscent of [his] lyrical contemporaries such as Ralph Alessi, Ambrose Akinmusire or Avishai Cohen...certainly deserving of a large audience and much recognition." (Friedrich Kunzmann, All About Jazz)

Born in Toronto and raised in Buenos Aires, Michael relocated to New York City in 2012 to pursue a master's degree in Jazz Studies at New York University, where he studied with great musicians such as Laurie Frink, Alan Ferber, Brad Shepik, Ralph Alessi and Mike Rodriguez. Michael has performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival, BRIC JazzFest, Getxo Blues Festival, Blue Note Jazz Club, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Beacon Theater, Central Park SummerStage, Teatro Colón, has appeared on WNYC's Soundcheck with John Schaefer, NPR's World Cafe, and many more.

His fourth album as a bandleader, New Aurora, released September 4 with ears&eyes Records, features a new acoustic quartet with Michael's horn at the fore-front. His three previous releases are with his septet Michael Sarian & The Chabones (Argentine slang for 'the dudes'), most recently LEÓN in August of 2018 with ZOHO Music.

Michael also leads a 16 piece big band alternative, Michael Sarian & The Big Chabones, co-leads a free jazz duo project with pianist Matthew Putman, is a stable member of The NYChillharmonic, the Bette Smith band, among other collaborations and projects."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"In the first lockdown, Matthew Putman (on keyboard) and Michael Sarian (on trumpet and flugelhorn) began to meet up (with precautions) for semi-regular sessions in Sarian's makeshift home studio. The conditions were less-than-ideal-a borrowed 20-year-old keyboard, an inadequate microphone, and cramped NYC apartment acoustics-but they continued their "weekly pilgrimages, searching for [their] cadences, rhythms and melodies through the Fall."

The sessions gave them much-needed sanity, grounding their friendship and keeping them afloat, as Sarian describes, "much like a lifeboat," making a project that is exploratory and open-minded, full of searching and synchronicity. These three chapters represent three separate sessions recorded in a three-week time period. The album, A Lifeboat (Part I), is the duo's debut on vinyl, following their 2020 project (Improvisations Volumes I and II), and precedes a second volume scheduled for later this year."-577 Revords
